Day 10

Ok, so I think Day 10 counts as four recipes as I made Zac’s omelette wraps with three different fillings – Avocado salsa, Cheese and ham and Smoked salmon and crème fraiche. In keeping with our traditional Sunday breakfast, this was a cooked dish that was supplemented with many, and I mean many fillings.   

I made the fillings first as I knew these would take the longest part to do so there was diced avocado, diced tomato, chopped scallions (raided my father’s garden for them!), chopped fresh coriander, limes (cut in eighths), chopped ham, fresh basil leaves, crème fraiche, smoked salmon, grated Gruyere cheese, capers, chopped chives and lemons (again cut in eighths). I arranged them all into dishes on the table and then started on the hot part of the recipe.

The omelette part of the recipe was so simple – two fresh eggs (thanks again Dad for them!), milk, butter and a pinch of salt and pepper. They took 2 minutes to cook on each side so I was there as usual with my stopwatch which has a permanent fixture to one of the cupboard door handles.

The verdict…

Dear Husband gave the whole breakfast an average score of 6 out of 10. The reason being was that he thought it would be more of a brunch or lunch meal rather than a breakfast. He scored the fillings separately as follows: Avocado salsa – 7 out of 10; Cheese and ham – 5 out of 10; and Smoked salmon and crème fraiche – 4 out of 10. Dear Son ate away at his and he picked the combinations himself which meant he was more likely to eat them which consisted of crème fraiche, ham and cheese.

In conclusion, I will definitely make these again but as a lunch. The cookbook is called “Easy Meals”, not “Quick Meals” and anyone can chop but don’t be in a hurry to get this one out on the table if you’re short on time. Alternatively, you could just make the omelettes with one type of filling. I still think that this is a great breakfast as it’s a good way of getting your 5-a-day in the fruit & veg department. Now, who couldn’t give that a high score?!
